  • The Physical Foundation Of Economicsby Jing Chen

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 82.00 US$ 74.62

    All human activities, including mental activities, are governed by physical laws and are essentially thermodynamic processes. However, current economic theories are not established on these foundations. This pioneering book seeks to develop an analytical theory of economics on the foundation of thermodynamic laws. A unified understanding of economic... more...

  • Challenges to The Second Law of Thermodynamicsby Vladislav Capek; Daniel Sheehan

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 180.45

    The second law of thermodynamics is considered one of the central laws of science, engineering and technology. For over a century it has been assumed to be inviolable by the scientific community. Over the last 10-20 years, however, more than two dozen challenges to it have appeared in the physical literature - more than during any other period in its... more...

  • Fundamentals of Equilibrium and Steady-State Thermodynamicsby N.W. Tschoegl

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 305.00

    This book summarizes the salient features of both equilibrium and steady-state thermodynamic theory under a uniform postulatory viewpoint. The emphasis is upon the formal aspects and logical structure of thermodynamic theory, allowing it to emerge as a coherent whole, unfettered by much of those details which - albeit indispensable in practical applications... more...

  • Continuum Thermomechanicsby Alfredo Bermúdez de Castro

    Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 63.68

    The general goal of this book is to deduce rigorously, from thefirst principles, the partial differential equations governing thethermodynamic processes undergone by continuum media under forcesand heat. Solids and fluids are considered in a unified framework.Reacting mixtures of fluids are also included for which generalnotions of thermodynamics... more...

  • Entropy Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 38.00 US$ 34.58

    In this unique book, Arieh Ben-Naim invites the reader to experience the joy of appreciating something which has eluded understanding for many years — entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The book has a two-pronged message: first, that the Second Law is not “infinitely incomprehensible” as commonly stated in textbooks of thermodynamics... more...

  • Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomenaby Michael Peters

    McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 165.00

    Many newly developing fields of science and engineering, including nanotechnology, protein engineering, microfluidics, etc., require an in-depth molecular understanding and description of matter. Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena: Complexities of Scales in Space and Time provides a rigorous molecular and statistical mechanical basis... more...

  • Thermodynamic Equilibria and Extremaby Alexander N. Gorban; Boris M. Kaganovich; Sergey P. Filippov; Alexandre V. Keiko; Vitaly A. Shamansky; Igor A. Shirkalin

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 116.76

    This book discusses mathematical models that are based on the concepts of classical equilibrium thermodynamics. These are intended for the analysis of possible results of diverse natural and production processes. Unlike traditional models, these allow readers to view the achievable set of partial equilibria with regards to constraints on kinetics,... more...

  • Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquidsby Denis J. Evans; Gary Morriss

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 46.00

    Graduate-level book on the analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. more...

  • Four Laws That Drive the Universeby Peter Atkins

    OUP Oxford 2007; US$ 7.99

    The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work. more...

  • Thermodynamics DeMYSTiFiedby Merle Potter

    McGraw-Hill Education 2009; US$ 28.00

    Take the heat off of understanding thermodynamics Now you can get much-needed relief from the pressure of learning the fundamentals of thermodynamics! This practical guide helps you truly comprehend this challenging engineering topic while sharpening your problem-solving skills. Written in an easy-to-follow format, Thermodynamics Demystified... more...
